Participants provided insights into their priorities, objectives, and challenges, in addition to success factors, ROI measures and technologies. The report examines the study's key findings and identifies best-in-class organizational attributes that are most highly correlated with SecOps success.
Sample of Findings
- One quarter of study participants indicate that SecOps is a critical priority for their executives. In contrast, nearly one third of executives treat SecOps as either a low priority – important only during a crisis, or a medium priority – exists primarily to satisfy compliance and regulatory requirements.
- Executive priority exhibits a strong correlation with success in SecOps. A lack of executive priority exhibits a strong correlation with limited success.
- In half of the organizations studied, SecOps is managed as a cost center. They do not measure Return on Investment (ROI).
- Organizations that do measure ROI indicate above average success in SecOps. Organizations that do not measure ROI indicate below average success.
